Stumped on this 1. Doing services at 120k. Drained oil and found this metal object stuck to drain plug magnet. Looked in parts book, closest part found that it could be is called shifter glide that rides on shift drum serrations but uncertain if thats what this is from. With it's 90° bend, 1 part of it goes to a sharp point and that reveals bright metal contrasting with the rest of it's parkerized finish. Definitely broken from something. No noticable power loss or shifting difficulties when riding. The only parts installed was a slipper clutch about 50-60k ago and replaced stator cover gasket is all that has been done. Of course, valve lash work has been done by me but I have no recall of something that comes remotely cose to whats imaged. Anyone have any idea what it is and where in the engine this may have come from?
